I’ve just spent the day merging the WordPress News and Blogs pages hosted on AROnline to become one – and, in doing so, created AROnline Live. It should all work as it did, with Blogs and News items being joined by First Drives as well as the other content we’ll be adding to the site in the future.
However, there’s still a fair bit of debate going on at AROnline Towers about the future of the site. Should we transfer all the content already online to our CMS system, or should we leave the existing static HTML pages as they are and just add all future development stories and galleries to the new system? The former would be best in terms of the way the site looks and feels, being consistent all the way across, but then we may lose all of our Google rankings, as well as the nice simple navgation system we designed all those years ago.
I’ll try the next development story I add to the site on both systems and see what feedback I get.
…just need to work out what that car’s going to be!
